I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Less is More #11

This is my card for this week's challenge on LESS IS MORE which is to use Acetate.

OMG!!!! I hate this stuff but thought I would have a bash, then I found I didn't have any in my stash so had to improvise by using a sheet of laminate LOL. I coloured the laminate with promarkers then punched out a butterfly.

I wanted to keep the card simple so just used flower, border and sentiment from Stampin Up set and used Weathered Wood Distress ink. I then found my blue card stock didn't match so coloured a piece of white with the Weathered wood ink.

Again I stepped out of my "comfort zone" and made an A6 card.

LOVE IT!!!!!

IMAGE, BORDER AND SENTIMENT:
Vintage Vogue set from STAMPIN UP
MEDIUM:
Weathered wood DI and promarkers from SECRET CRAFTER
TOOLS:
Cuttlebug
Circle and scallop circle nesties from SECRET CRAFTER
Martha Stewart Butterfly punch from SECRET CRAFTER
OTHERS:
Large and small pearls from SECRET CRAFTER
